Curveballs and dots

Hi everyone!

Have you missed me? I sure missed you! I know it's been awfully quiet around here for the last two weeks. Life has thrown us a couple of curveballs and we've been scrambling to get everything back to sort of normal. We're not through it all yet but at least I managed to squeeze in some time to write a quick post to let you know I haven't disappeared and I'm still painting my nails (as if anyone had any doubts about that last part ;)

This is what my nails have looked like for the last week (the first week I kept staring at the roses I did for our last Triad post... VNL or not, I loved them!):

I started out by painting my thumb, index and pinky with two thin coats of KIKO 485 Pearly Coral Rose, a coral polish with lots and lots of golden shimmer that shows up beautifully when the sun hits it, but that is a nightmare to photograph. It shows up a little on my pinky in the flash picture. Oh well, just pretend you can see the shimmer on my nails ;)

While that dried I painted my ring finger with two effortless coats of OPI Alpine Snow and my middle finger received three thin coats of LilypadLacquer Diamond in the Rough, an uber-blingy pale gold holo that dries to a slightly gritty finish and eats top coat for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I've tried to show off the bling a bit better in a picture taken with flash:

I finished my manicure by making dots in coral and gold with a dotting tool and a generous coat of Seche Vite on all nails (and some more on my ring finger until it felt smooth).

I used these polishes:

Quick, easy and summery... that should have been not just the description of my nails but also of the last weeks. Oh well, at least I had pretty nails to look at. I hope you like them too :)

LilypadLacquer Diamond in the Rough was bought from Hypnotic Polish.
